Saddle Up Santa will be held on Dec. 8th from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Dothan Boots & Saddle Club, located at 1347 East Saunders Road in Dothan. Saddle Up Santa is a Christmas Festival with free entertainment for local residents, including free games and inflatable bounce houses for children, a cake walk, door prizes, silent auction, visits with Santa, gifts from Santa, Aileen Clayton and David Dale providing musical entertainment, the Salvation Army Mobile Canteen providing lunch, and more.
There will be horse drawn wagon rides and even a skit done by a drill team on horseback. This event is a great way to step back into time where money isn’t everything, it’s a way to let children and families see the joys of Christmas and community. In addition, area non-profit agencies will be on hand that provide services to assist and help families struggling to make ends meet.
We will also be collecting canned food for the Wiregrass Area Food Bank. Donations appreciated but not required to enjoy the fun. This is a wonderful event, focused on families that don’t have a lot of money to spend, especially during the Holidays. Event proceeds will go to the local Wiregrass 2-1-1 program.
We are looking for sponsors to help pay necessary expenses. If you or your business is interested in making a tax deductible donation to help ensure struggling families with children have a chance to experience the joys of Christmas and community, contact Dawn Greathouse with the Dothan Boots & Saddle Club at (334) 685-2409.
